Not long after Donald Trump announced his plan to run for president [VIDEO], he was quickly forced to push back against allegations that he was in cahoots with Russia. As the election moved on, speculation grew about what role Russia had in regards to the billionaire real estate mogul. However, the pressure increased following Trump's shocking upset win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, as multiple well-respected news outlets as well as various government agencies all reported that the Kremlin hacked the election with a Trump victory in mind.

Fast forward to earlier this month and it was reported that Trump and Vladimir Putin met for a brief period of time during the G-20 summit. While that meeting has been confirmed by all sides, a new report is not being received well by the president and the White House. As reported by #NBC News on July 18, Trump and Putin also held a follow up meeting, which the president was quick to comment on during his latest tweetstorm.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday night, Donald Trump was quick to address the latest report that he met with Vladimir Putin for a second time earlier this month. "Fake News story of secret dinner with Putin is 'sick,'" Trump tweeted, before adding, "All G 20 leaders, and spouses, were invited by the Chancellor of Germany.

Press knew!"

In a follow up message, Donald Trump continued to double down on his attack on the alleged "fake news." "The Fake News is becoming more and more dishonest!" Trump tweeted out, while noting, "Even a dinner arranged for top 20 leaders in Germany is made to look sinister!" Trump pushing back against media reports have become his normal course of action, as the president has made it a routine to bash the press, using Twitter as his number one form of communication to attack reporters and journalists.
